With heavy hearts and after much discussion with our Board and Planners, we have decided to cancel our 2020 SisterSpace Weekend Women’s Festival, at least in its physical form. Our concerns over being able to safely protect our attendees along with the Maryland guidelines for opening up for large gatherings make this event not feasible for this year.
We were trying to delay our announcement out of respect for current events going on but the constant queries coming in let us know of your uncertainty and that SisterSpace is still on your minds.
For those of you who hve already registered, we are offering three options. You can 1) roll over your registration to our 2021 festival, 2) donate the price of your ticket to the organization, or 3) ask for a refund. We will refund your ticket price (minus PayPal and Eventbee fees) until July 15th. After that, we will return to our regular refund policies. We can be reached for a notification of your decision or If you have any questions at firstname.lastname@example.org.
We will also be leaving the registration link open for anyone else who wants to register in advance for 2021.
SisterSpace has always been about community and we continue to reach out to you, our sisters, to come together in solidarity and discussion and education to ensure that we can create a safe space for all.
As part of celebrating and connecting our community, we have created a Summer with SisterSpace series (also postponed slightly due to current events) that will feature Town Hall discussions, vendor sales and demos, attendee-led workshops, and behind the scenes highlights of the festival every Wednesday evening. This will help lead up to our virtual festival being planned for Sept 11-13, 2020. This festival will feature fabulous performances, workshops, vendors and so much more. Future announcements about all these exciting events will be following soon.
Thank you again for being part of our SisterSpace family! Keep checking in with our social media and once again, please keep an eye out for our Summer with SisterSpace series starting soon every Wednesday night at 8 pm as well as our fun-filled virtual Meetups happening twice a month on Mondays all summer long.
Stay safe and let’s take care of each other through these difficult and trying times.
Love and gratitude,
SisterSpace Board of Directors
